I love my truck. Maintained extremely well by the previous owner. Rides and drives like new. looks awesome.
I loved everything about this truck till one day out of the clear blue, it blew a spark plug, I maintained this truck very good and kept up with regular oil changes and maintenance. fixed blown spark plug now it has a loud chatter and all this for no reason. And the worst of it is that the manufacture knows about this issue but will not recall or repair it for free. be aware that your spark plugs can blow out especially if the dealer or repair shop replaces your spark plugs, and are not careful
One tough truck! Terrible fuel economy but it sure can pull!
This is by far the best truck I have owned. Comfort and power. Ford has done a great job with this truck line. I highly recommend the XLT.
best dam truck in the world
Pros: the ford emblem of course
Cons: everything is awesomeruns great looks great very comfortable vehicle 30years best selling vehicle says it all
Substandard window regulators.
Cons: Paying for broken window regulators.I have bought ford's for 40yrs. & unless you bought the low end mod. with hand crank windows , you were forced to get power window ,great when they work but very coastly when they break. The regulator that opens & closes the windows is substandard in all fords they seemed to last just long enough untill the warrenty runs out then they foil leaving you with your window glass down inside the door. Try going through 2 hurricane's like that I'm and old guy & it hard for me to handel a tarp in high winds to keep the rain out of my veh. Then you have the repair coast,,350.00 to 400.00 to replace the regulator. Bad design for the owner .Great for FORD & the dealer.
My biggest disappointment
Pros: Looks and cab space
Cons: The ride and handling.I had a F-150 Crew that I loved. Especially on trips with my daughters. Only problem was the crew cab. it was a little tight. The seats were great quality and the ride was as good as most of my sedans. But, it was 8 years old and had 80,000 miles. So, I traded it for a 2010, same model. The looks are great. But, that's where it stops. This vehicle is hard to steer, and rides rough even on a new highway. I took it back and was told that this is Fords new sports car ride, feel and handling.They admitted that they didn't like it either. I tried to give it back at 238 miles, but, was laughed at. I'm 82 and this may be my last vehicle. I'm not a happy camper.
